The competition freestyle machine that powered Alex Pastor to his World Championship title receives a full makeover this year. Increased stiffness in the tips of the board increase the pop and drive, while the dual rocker and deep channel tips make the Livewire Team ideal for riders who prefer to ride more powered.

The full high-modulus Carbon Torsion layer works in conjunction with the key shape features to tension as the board is twisted and loaded up, then responds immediately as the rider launches, creating the perfect pop. While the torsional orientation maximizes pop, the biaxial carbon outer layer works together with the vertical sandwich wood core and unidirectional base laminate for a smooth ride and energy absorption when landing from big power tricks. The ultra-lightweight top sheet outer layer maintains durability without adding unnecessary weight.
Combining this highly evolved shape with unique lamination, construction and core technology, the Livewire Team is the ultimate dedicated freestyle board.
Multizone Biotech Core
The airush multizone biotech construction is a vertical paulownia wood core sandwich. This multilayer construction creates a consistent density from the natural material. Our wood cores are renowned for their response, durability and smoothness, and are combined with a versatile combination of laminates depending on each model’s requirement, for all-round performance and durability.
Full Carbon Torsion Control
Airush carbon torsion control creates a unique performance advantage developed specifically for performance freeride boards. Traditionally higher flex boards, which are ideal for freeride, have significant torsional flex. Carbon torsion control features bias oriented carbon fiber along the heel edge which reduces the amount of torsional flex in this area and allows you to ride the board flatter for increased comfort and speed.
Dual Rocker/Channel Tips
The progressive dual rocker featured on the livewire offers a unique rocker where smaller sizes run slightly flatter rocker to enhance acceleration, while larger sizes feature an increased rocker improving the performance for boot riding. The outer rail features a flatter rocker for improved edging, upwind and light-wind performance while the higher rocker centre section improves the loading for wakestyle riding.
Airush introduced fms rating 6 years ago as the first brand to quantify how much a twintip flexes. Instead of the good old “feel” test, which can be very deceptive due to the impact of the length on the overall stiffness, fms takes into account the board’s length and deflection. A lower rating indicates a softer board more suited to freeride, while higher rated stiffer boards are more suited to freestyle.
Abs Reinforced Inserts
No more pulled or broken inserts from hard landings or crashes. Featured on all airush boards, the abs reinforced inserts create the ultimate amount of durability whether riding with boots or straps.
